Tribal Sub Plan

A special strategy was adopted during the 5th five-year plan (1975-79) for accelerated development of the Scheduled Tribes. This strategy is called Tribal Sub-plan (TSP). It is a mechanism under which each development department of the State Government is required to quantify and set apart an amount of their plan budget provision for implementation of schemes exclusively for the Welfare of Scheduled Tribes in Tripura. The fund so quantified shall not be less than the percentage of ST population in the State.

          In Tripura each development Department has to quantify at least 31% of their plan fund towards Tribal Sub-plan. In 1995-96 an important decision was taken by the State Government to the effect that the fund earmarked as Tribal Sub-Plan should be booked against the Budget Demand of the Tribal Welfare Department (under Demand No-19).

         To monitor activities in TSP area a State Level Monitoring Committee on Tribal Sub Plan  has been formed with the  following   members:-
